Fiscal Policy w/ Prof. Arjun Jayadev

 

Set your Internet Browser to OBR.FM.

 

Fiscal policy is based on the idea that the government can use spending or
taxation, not just for the sake of funding useful programs, but also as a
way to affect the economy. Topics discussed in this show include, how fiscal
policy is supposed to work, a comparison of demand-based economic policy
with "supply side" theories, austerity vs. stimulus, debt and deficit, and
is Keynesianism "dead"? Other questions addressed are: How well have
President Obama's economic policies been working? and how should we decide
how much government spending is enough? (For instance does Mitt Romney's
proposed 20% cap make sense?)

 

Dr. Arjun Jayadev is an Assistant Professor of Economics at U. Mass - Boston
with a strong commitment to progressive policies to make the economy work
for the 99%. This is his second appearance on FSU-Radio.
